1903 - WONDERFUL ELECTRICITY. City Hall Has Been Thoroughly Wired and Everything is as Brilliant as Daylight.
The work of wiring City Hall was completed last evening and the lights were turned on for the first time. The large chandelier, in the center of the hall has been removed and a notable improvement made.
The hall was never more thoroughly lighted than last evening when the electrician in charge of the wiring pressed the button and the lights went on. Every part of the work is complete and the building is now thoroughly up-to-date so far as lighting is concerned. The Lewiston and Auburn Electric Co. booth is not yet completed, though employees of the company are working hard every day. The color scheme green and white is an attractive one and the company's electrical exhibition during State Fair week will, it is said, be nothing short of wonderful.
